Hypocrisy & Contradiction in the Liberal Media

Did you know the liberal media considers themselves “patriots” for hammering President Trump…but considers him “unamerican” for responding to their criticism?

Or that President Trump’s misspelling of a word on a tweet might be a sign of a President on the brink of mental and emotional collapse, and a danger to our nation?

Or how about “all this climate change is due to humanity” while they acknowledge natural climate change has been a reality for thousands of years?

These are a few of the topics we will cover in our Media Watch segment this morning. Also we respond to your questions from our last couple shows.

Tragedy and Crisis at Saddleback Church

A sad story to report this morning is one that the Left may try using to accuse the Christian Church in America or hate or hypocrisy. A 32 year old volunteer youth minister at Saddleback Church has been arrested and charged with taking sexual improprieties of two underage children. The man charged is the son of Pastor Abraham Muelenberg. He spearheaded the Muslim outreach program at Saddleback Church and presented the controversial “Kingdom Circles” teaching a few years back, claiming that people (Muslims) did not need to become Christians to be saved.

We will discuss how these allegations, if true, could have a chilling affect on church youth and counseling programs in the future. In our first segment we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss the ruling by a Federal Court that a Kenosha transgendered person must be allowed to use whichever bathroom and shower facility fits with her gender fluidity. Parents, it may be coming to your child’s school if it is not already there.

Time to stand?

About a year ago, we compiled a list of resources for those who are alarmed by their church leadership’s affiliation with the Willow Creek Association.  Why did we do this? Because the Willow Creek model was developed by a...

If Saul Alinsky Was Alive Today

Saul Alinsky, a radical liberal and agnostic, wrote the blueprint on how to introduce chaos through community organizing in hopes of overthrowing the government of the United States by undermining its foundational systems: government, public education, media, and the church. His book Rules For Radicals spells out how people should organize and force change through misinformation and intimidation. In his book he acknowledges the “first radical known to man: Lucifer.”

Today we explore two questions: First, what would Saul Alinsky think if he were alive today? And second, how could a man who admired Lucifer have such a strong influence – not only in our nation but also in too many American Christian Churches?

We’re joined this morning my John Loeffler, a fifty year veteran of broadcast journalism and born-again follower of Jesus Christ. John is in his 25th year of hosting Steel on Steel radio–a news talk program that looks at today’s events through the lens of the Bible.

Just How Low Can Humanity Sink?

In our final segment this morning we cover a tragic story of what can happen when people are taught that human life is an accident of the universe instead of life created by God in His image. A group of teenagers in Florida saw a man drowning, and instead of trying to help him they recorded the event on social media, mocking him as he splashed around. Now, two young daughters are without their father.

First up, we talk with Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project and discuss his article, “A Simple Approach to Sharing Your Faith.” Have we made sharing the gospel something we dread instead of enjoy doing? What are some ways we can open up a discussion with anyone, offering them the hope of eternal life with God?

Discernment or Self-Destruction?

This morning on Stand Up For the Truth we read your comments and answer your questions from this week.  One central theme is discernment issues within Christianity.  Are we using proper biblical discernment or engaging in prideful witch hunts, looking to discredit others who we disagree with?  Also, several have chimed in regarding young people seeking “community” outside the confines of church. We discuss these and other topics of interest today.

First up, David covers our weekly Media watch segment, answering this question:  Why does secular media dedicate so much time to covering issues Americans say they don’t care about?

Controversial Issues in the Christian Church

Families and societies operate best when there are fixed standards of morality to guide our actions. In our nation, we were established upon the rule of law, supposedly giving us clear instruction what is acceptable or unacceptable behavior. As Christians we are guided by God’s Word which sets the ultimate standard for morality and acceptable behavior for us. But what happens when “normal” becomes subjective to personal feelings?

In the first segment today, we check in with Doug Wakefield of Best Minds, Inc. to keep an eye on world wide economic trends that point to globalism through a coming shake up in the world economy.

Is This the Future of America’s Churches?

Today we cover an intriguing article from Denver, Colorado about an “atheist church of free thinkers.” What is very interesting about the article is the words they use to describe their “community” are the same words that appeal to many young Christians these days: Free-thinking, questioning, skeptical, and conversational.

Is this the model for the future of church for our younger people? We discuss this with Dave Wager of Silver Birch ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute. Dave has worked with youth for 35 years.
